Emulating the ripples a butterfly makes in flight, this flatware undulates with graceful rhythm. Each shapely utensil, born of a solid piece of hot-forged stainless steel, feels luxuriously weighted and finds balance in the creases of your hands. Acclaimed designer Karim Rashid adds his creative touch by significantly shortening the knife blade and ballooning the spoon bowls, resulting in a visually as well as tactilely intriguing pattern. Match the dishwasher-safe flatware with any dinnerware, especially our pure white Butterfly porcelain, to set a form-driven, modern table. Nambé's stainless steel flatware is dishwasher safe. Rinse each piece prior to loading it into the dishwasher and avoid overcrowding. These items may also be washed by hand using a mild detergent and soft sponge. Dry each piece promptly. Care Instructions: Wash your flatware as soon as possible after each use. Do not leave flatware in standing water for extended periods of time. Avoid acidic detergents, such as lemon or other citrus dishwashing soaps, as long-term use of these products can dull your flatware's finish. Keep your flatware away from open flame or sources of extreme heat. Remove discoloration using a paste of baking soda and water. Nambé Polish or a stainless steel polish may also be used to polish Nambé flatware. Use care when using flatware and serving utensils together with Nambé Alloy serving pieces; they can scratch the surfaces. Do not store your flatware in plastic bags or other wrappings that trap moisture; for safe storage, remove from original packaging and wrap pieces individually in a soft cloth. 5-pc. set includes a dinner knife, dinner fork, salad fork, soup spoon, and teaspoon.
